Sad Game of Thrones fans offered next best thing with Now TV’s matchmaker

Can’t wait nine months for GoT season 5 to drop? Now TV is offering some rather tenuously-related shows you can watch in the meantime.

The streaming service is running a competition via Twitter to find out from viewers what they love most about the fantasy series.

Once viewers have chosen the three things they love most about Game of Thrones, Now TV will then recommend three new shows it thinks viewers will love based on their answers.

Some lucky viewers could even win a free takeaway simply by entering. Prizes of a £10 voucher will be sent straight to winners via Direct Message on Twitter. Viewers will have to include the hashtag #nowtvmatchmaker to enter the competition. The promotion ends on June 27. 

More details on the competition can be found here.

The fourth season of Game of Thrones has only just ended, with most video streaming service providers allowing their customers to download and view the latest batch of episodes. It was notably the first to be made available on Now TV – Sky’s on-demand service for non-Sky TV customers – at the same time as the Sky Atlantic TV broadcast.

Blinkbox has also made available season four of Game of Thrones months before the DVD release and a day after the finale aired on Sky Atlantic.
